Research Interests

Michael Edwards is a Smuts Research Fellow at the Centre of South Asian Studies. An anthropologist interested in questions of religion, media, and democracy, he received his PhD from the LSE in 2019. He’s currently writing a book about the work of translation in encounters between Pentecostalism and Buddhism amidst Myanmar’s fraught political transition. His next project – involving fieldwork in the highlands of Myanmar and in the American heartland – will explore issues of migration, faith, and populism.
